Have a killer waffle recipe and ended up making way too much? Looking at ways to store and enjoy your masterpiece creations at a later date? Are you just looking to freeze some waffles so you can pop them in the toaster and have them as part of your quick breakfast? Well its a good thing you ended up here 🙂
The first order of business is can you freeze waffles? The answer is yes and freezing them is so easy to do and they can actually be stored for a good amount of time as well.
How Do You Freeze Waffles?
Freezing waffles, whether it is homemade, Belgian or leftover is very easy and all you have to do is follow the simple steps below and you are in business.
If you are making waffles from scratch, what you will need to do is put them in the griddle and once finished, take them out and allow them to cool properly.
When properly cooled, you are going to place the waffles on a cookie/baking sheet. If you have a lot of waffles, then once the first set is on the sheet, you can take parchment paper and place on the first set, then stack the others accordingly.
You are now going to place the cookie/baking sheet full of waffles into the freezer. You can allow them to freeze for about an hour.
Once fully frozen, you can now place them in freezer bags. When putting them in the freezer bag, try to squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing them.
Remember to write the date that you put them in the freezer, just so you can know how long they have been in there. Frozen waffles can be stored for up to 3 months.
